coats by caitlinbanton featuring an asos beanie
Recently I have been obsessing over tailored coats, especially long line styles.There are many I have been coveting lately, lusting over them and their structured beauty - I love how a coat can really make an outfit, add a smarter edge or make it more fun and relaxed with a pop of colour or some leather. As my love affair with tartan continues, I am longing for this below the knee, red check coat from Zara, the texture and length are just perfect: it is the dream coat. But for now I will have to continue dreaming ....

Autumnal hues by caitlinbanton featuring The Cambridge Satchel Company
So suddenly winter has come all too quickly upon us, the days colder and the evenings darker although it seems as though i've only blinked and the seasons changed, with my brain still feeling as though it's in August. How has the time flown?! As the season has changed so has gradually my wardrobe, becoming darker and increasing in layers, the colour palette merging to an abundance of black with highlights of oxblood, cobalt blues and... tartan. I think I currently have a love affair with tartan. I have been trying to draw myself away from black and tartan seems to be the answer. I seem to have began to live in just black ensembles and as safe as it is, it's not too lively and I need to remind myself halloween is over, so should stop dressing so morbid and using that as an excuse. Im looking forward to playing with splashes of colours and metallic hints to add a bit of fun to an outfit, an unexpected accent to add interest to a look. Another aspect i have been lusting over at the moment is textures: leathers, feathers,PVC and jewels. Individually using the fabrics or combining a few at once - why not, you never know it could work.
